today points to a very tight race. according to "new york times"/cbs news poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. tight across the country. last month the president up one point in that state n virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. in wisconsin, the candidates also within the margin of error after the president lost the point from last month and mitt romney gained two. again this is all within the margin of error. a day after mitt romney, meanwhile, told the des moines register he would not pursue any abortion related legislation as president, mr. romney looked to clarify that position while campaigning in ohio. there he told reporters he would take action from the white house to reduce the number of abortions in the country. >> i think i said time and again i'm a pro-life candidate. i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. >> remove funding for planned parenthood. he said he would ban taxpayer funding for groups that perform abortions overseas. in an interview wi
-point reversal from a week ago. >>> and according to a "new york times"/cbs poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. last month the president was up one point in that state. in virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. he's now up 51%-46%. and in wisconsin, the candidates are within the margin of error after the president lost a point from last month and mitt romney gained two. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the p
. the wind right now seems to be at mitt romney's back, and it will be interesting to see where all the polls show the ohio race to be at a moment at which president obama is having the toughest headwinds that he's experienced the past three months and mitt romney finally has the wind at his back. it's interesting for us to see where ohio is in all of this because ohio, as you all know very well, a republican is not won the presidency without ohio. if mitt romney is unable to win it, it limits his chances to get to the 270 votes. >> do we have any more insight into the polls closing in ohio specifically? we keep saying the debate and performances. was there something substantive that perhaps we're seeing hit a note with particularly people in the midwest regarding this shift, if it is a solid shift? >> what we did notice in the pugh poll was there was a shift for mitt romney in the midwest. he made gains there, and that is pretty significant. as far as what ended up happening, i can't give you a good answer for that. i think the media's portrayal of the debate, everyone declaring that preside
, romney 49. if you can keep up up at this point, 49/46. the state polls caught your eye as well, michigan in particular. you look at those numbers. >> right. in the michigan poll it was a survey that had president obama holding onto a narrow three-point lead down from a 10--point lead earlier last month. that poll was kind of what we saw. i was talking to a republican looking at all the polling numbers and races who said, when the races were outside the margin of error, they're now in the margin of error, when president obama was up maybe 1, 2, 3 points they're tied or president obama up one. so the central thing is this race has tightened. mitt romney has seen all the polling numbers move in the direction. i don't think we know that in complete verdict where this race is. a lot of democrats are bracing for a close race a few months ago and they're bracing for one now. >> mark murray, thank you very much. you'll join us as at the half hour mark. let's bring in the "news nation" political panel. with us from afar is steve deyse a nationally syndicated radio talk show host. we allowed you t
's what that pew poll looks like now. mitt romney has erased his eight-point deficit and he has turned entitle a four-point lead in that poll. what happened in the race all of a sudden to cause that sort of a jump? well, right here was the first presidential debate that happened last week. so before we had numbers that reflected the post-convention bounce for the democratic side. what you're looking at after that is the post-debate bounce for the republican side. we are actually still experiencing mitt romney's post-debate bounce. it is not over. every new national poll released today shows mr. romney either leading president obama or tied with him. this is what a post-debate bounce looks like. for all the democratic hand wringing going on right now, here's essentially what happened in the last month. the race was tight and president obama got a post-convention bounce and went out ahead and then mitt romney erased that and we are back where we started. democrats are hoping that the mitt romney post-debate bounce ends tomorrow. democrats are hoping that we are about to have a new seismi
in the buckeye state. the first poll was conducted entirely after last week's debate shows romney with a four-point lead monday likely voters. it's a 12-point swing. if you look at gallup, obama leads among registered voters but romney leads among the all important likely voters. it's why both pull out the big guns on the trail calling in bill clinton and chris christie, while the running mates are holed up in debate prep. they face off thursday in kentucky. one month out, and we start today with "washington post" political columnist dana millback. >> hi, s.e. >> hi. let's start with with the pugh poll. it puts hit ahead likely voters and registered voters and he's made big gains among women voters and middle class voters. is it about one debate night? >> it's time for obama to panic. we did this a couple of weeks ago when the polls were the other way, and then it was time for romney to panic. it's probably not time for anybody to panic. this race is now what it was weeks ago, months ago, and that's a fairly close race it will on election day. it's decided by two, three percentage points. we'

romney is seeing a bump in the polls and in some states is eating nearly ahead. by dint will try to turn this around -- -- biden will try to turn this around, and the burden is on ryan to keep romney's bounce here alive for a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. that is the biggest reason i think that is a big reason why this does matter. this is the first or maybe the only campaign where one side is campaigning against the policies of the other party's president as much as they are against the presidential nominee. paul ryan and his budget proposals are a flash point in this campaign, so it is unique in that sense because by then -- biden will be hammering paul ryan in the gop ticket on his proposal and on long-term fiscal issues. >> you framed it this way -- in 2008 gentlemen joe debated sarah palin, and you are wondering if scranton joe will show up for tonight's debate. >> sources i talked to on both sides of the aisle say this will be an aggressive, forward-a leading joe biden, someone who will really want to frame a negative message against ro

polls just before the debate and they show that it was closing. after romney had a bet of september as you could have which kind of confirms my belief that there is a lid on obama ceiling, that because of the poor economic record there is a limit to how bloated and committed to obama people are and now i would say, still agree with my colleagues that i think obama is the favorite that i think it's more like 55-45 and i think it's very clear, still somewhat difficult but a much clearer path to romney winning the presidency. >> let's talk about the debate for a moment. based on your comments and sources what went wrong or the -- what went wrong for the president and how did romney become the super debater? we hadn't seen romney in the prior few months or so in terms of being assertive and authoritative. what happened in the white house and what happened with romney? >> i like jay leno's line that only the nfl replacement refs thought that romney one.
